2004 AHR EXPO Innovation Award Winners Selected
Ceremony To Take Place at 2004 Show In Anaheim
Westport, CT - The winners of the second annual AHR Expo Innovation Awards have been announced by the program sponsors. The most innovative products among the thousands on display at the 2004 AHR Expo have been selected as winners in eight specific categories: Heating; Cooling; Refrigeration; Ventilation; Indoor Air Quality; Energy Management; Tools & Instruments and Software.
Representing a broad cross-section of HVAC&R products from leading manufacturers around the world, product entries were judged for innovation, application, value to user, and market impact. A panel of judges, made up of ASHRAE members selected for their exceptional knowledge of the industry and its products, reviewed and evaluated all submissions. The 2004 awards program generated a total of 107 entries. The show will take place from January 26-28 at the Anaheim Convention Center.
"We were very pleased with the wide range and high quality of product submissions we received for the second year of the award," said Clay Stevens, president of IEC. "We see this as a win-win situation for everyone involved. The industry benefits from learning about new product innovation, and the winning companies are recognized for their excellence," Stevens emphasized.
Designed to encourage product innovation, the competition is jointly sponsored by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE); the Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Institute (ARI); and International Exposition Company (IEC), producers and organizers of the AHR Expo. An award in each of the eight categories will be presented to the winners at a special reception during the 2004 AHR Expo.
